The Seven of Swords often points to tactics, strategies, stealth, and sometimes deceit. In many traditional Tarot decks, the imagery depicts a man sneaking away from a camp with a bundle of swords, leaving two behind. This card might indicate a situation where one is trying to get away with something or, conversely, feeling like they're being deceived. The Seven of Swords suggests being aware of hidden motives—either one's own or others'. It emphasizes the importance of honesty, transparency, and understanding in situations, particularly when the full picture might not be immediately clear.
